Talisman v2.0 Beta 4

Thursday, July 26, 2001 by l0c | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Talisman is one of the more configurable skinnable desktops out there with a huge array of available skins.

This build includes a few fixes, more themes, and better language support!

This looks quite nice. I've looked at Talisman a few time.

I would be interested in some comments about what features of Talisman are better than DesktopX (if there are any).

I personally like the custom icons for the Talisman menu. The same could be done for DX.

I think Talisman is right there with Desktop X as the best available.

How come WinCustomize doesn't host Talisman themes also? ...It should!

I used Talisman and prefer DesktopX. The reason I do is that Talisman takes over Windows completely. DesktopX can do as little or as much with your desktop as you want. I also found DesktopX much easier to do stuff with.

Corkweed, if you're looking for Talisman2 themes... I think the largest repositories for them are located at:

LightTek.com - http://www.lighttek.com/themes2/index.htm

deviantART.com - http://www.deviantart.com/browse/?section=talismantwo

I enjoyed using Talisman but in the end, I preferred the default Windows 2000 shell.
